Sunday chillin'

Well, it's Sunday afternoon (one day closer to the Super Bowl) and Ed and I are just chillin'. (Ed's my sweetie). He's making buttons to sell for the Super Bowl with his "Badge-a-Minit". I'll have to post some of the results. They look really cool. I was working on my Steeler Afghan. Would you believe we searched everywhere yesterday for the yellow yarn that I ran out of and couldn't find it. I made a phone call today to another Jo Ann's and they were out. This town is just crazy when it comes to black and gold. When we went to the local craft store we couldn't even get in the parking lot with all the people buying decorations for their Steeler parties, I guess. Now this is a craft store that on the norm has only about 2 cars in it, one of which is the worker inside. Anyway, I ended up ordering the darn stuff online since Ed said he really would like the afghan to be "twin-bed" size. It really is turning out cool. All this Super Bowl stuff in January certainly makes for a fun month that usually is depressing and dreary.
The other thing we did yesterday was deliver my first three afghans for Project Linus. I have posted the pics above. One is a picture of the tag I designed to put on the back of my afghans and quilts. I'm hoping to make three a month...that's my goal anyway. I'm going to try and make a link for Project Linus so everyone knows what it is and maybe will think about checking into it. It's a great way to give back.
That's it for now...have to go web searching for a pork chop recipe for the Chef Ed....Go Steelers!!

OK...HERE WE GO!!!! That is definately a phrase with double being a Pittsburgh Steeler cheer for the Super Bowl and the other being this is my first attempt at a blog and I don't know what the HECK I am doing. I'm writing this as I am about to finish my Steeler afghan (did I mention I am a Steeler fan?) for the Super Bowl next Sunday. I'm crocheting it and will post a picture hopefully before the weekend is over. (if I can figure out how to post a picture) I ran out of yarn as I usually do then I have to go searching for the yarn that I said in my mind when I bought it, "Oh, they have a lot of this color in case I run out." Yeah, right! I went to JoAnn Fabrics at my lunch hour one day and bought gold and black yarn for this afghan. (and yes, they did have alot!) When I went back the next day, just to be safe, they were all out of gold. (well, this is Steeler country) If you want it and it's black and gold, don't wait!!! Buy up all there is and then some (you can always sell it to someone for double the price...hee, hee!)
I sorta hope that I get some comments on this blog. I promise I'll get more interesting with pics of my cat, dog, turtle, and of course my sweetie and me. Maybe I'll throw in one of my teenage son on the rare moments that he smiles (which is usually after I give him some money). So give me a high five for my attempts at blogging and if your a Steeler fan....well, definately let me know that. Let's go STEELERS!!!!!
